This is the room we crafted in is part of an old church. The Beamsley project provides self catering accommodation for disabled people and their carers. So there's plenty of space. Which was definitely needed when you saw everyone arriving with their craft stuff.
I managed to make 24 (4 each of 6 designs) . Not bad considering how much time we spent yapping and eating cakes.
This one was my favourite and the simplest!! I love the Stampendous "Wise Men" . I bought it last year and never used it.
- Blend 3 colours of Distress ink onto white card stock (Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire)
- Ink up music background stamp with Versa Mark and spritz with water. Stamp onto blue background and lift off. The water removes some of the ink to give a subtle resist type effect.
- Stamp the swirl stamp (Hero Arts S5449 Fabulous Flourish) with second generation Stormy Sky)
- Stamp Wise Men with Versafine Onyx Black and highlight detail with gold pen.
- So simple!!
So a big thank you to Janet and Michelle for organising such a good retreat. Thanks to Emma and Andy who fed us all so well. And thanks to Drew who drove two gibbering budgies all the way there and back. Although we did sleep quite a bit on the way home.
